Yay, me!

I've just finished my 5-6 page paper for the Interpersonal Neurobiology of Depression course, and it's only 7 pages long! "I would have written a shorter 'letter' but I did not have the time" - which quotation, apparently, does NOT belong to Mark Twain, NOR to T. S. Eliot, but to Pascal of all people! Who knew?

I am so inspired and proud of all that you have accomplished. I have opened my eyes to life that one can have before, during and after being a wife and mother. Funny, I always thought you could only have one or the other, turns out, you can have it all, just not at the same time.

Yeah ... well ... thanks, Jess. It's nice to have the encouragement. Especially since my husband, highly valued for his truth-telling ability, listened to the stupid thing on the way to church this morning. (He had to. He was driving. I read it to him.)

He pointed out some rather obvious flaws, and so I've spent the afternoon fixing it. It's down to the requisite six pages, at least.
